STEM education is proven to help children to be thinkers and problem-solvers. Children are born scientists and engineers. Their natural curiosity and insatiable appetite for exploration to push boundaries should be encouraged and developed to prepare them for tomorrow.
InventiveKids’ InventiveMakers™ curriculum aims to develop:
- a questioning and divergent problem-solving mindset (multiple solutions instead of just one ‘correct’ solution),
- an aptitude for collaboration and team work and,
- an appreciation of STEM and how various scientific and engineering concepts apply in real world situations and in our lives.
Have you ever think of building and flying your own DRONE! What’s more, you can put in your own creative ideas to design your DRONE.
Gone are the days that DRONE is labelled as complicated and difficult and only for adults!
Now, you can build one with materials and components provided. You will be taught what makes a DRONE and how to FLY one at the end of the course.
We aim to nurture our young inventors and entrepreneurs of our future!
Lesson will be conducted in an interactive based approach where student work in small teams to build, design, test and improve their drone.
Discovery Vacation Camps starts in 1992 is all about kids learning SCIENCE in a FUN and ENJOYABLE way.
Kids can join 5 day camps in the school holidays and take part in projects, go for outings and learn science. It’s not all fun and games tough as it’s reported that kids come back with lot’s of worksheets to show after the camp.
It isn’t every day that kids can learn to shape the future.
Kids today live, learn and play in a digital- centric world. Wouldn’t it be great for them to acquire the programming and computational thinking skills that would enable them to become more adaptive and fully-engaged in this exciting and fast-changing environment?
Rather than just learning through digital interaction, Saturday Kids takes a design- based approach that emphasises digital creation. By making it fun and engaging to practise concepts such as iteration, testing, debugging, remixing and modularising, kids receive a well-rounded education in computational thinking, and open their minds to achieve a level of digital literacy that is more meaningful than simply playing with gadgets.
Saturday Kids is organising several Scratch programming for kids aged 7-13!
Lessons are held at 10 Square @ Orchard Central, Fidgets World and Collision 8 High Street Centre
This is a new science centre specially designed for kids 18 months to 8 years old.
The programmes aim to introduce science through engaging activities, facilitated by early childhood professionals and educators. Kids could become pilots and learn how a plane works, or surgeons to learn about the different body parts and organs, or even palaeontologists to learn more about dinosaurs. There are four thematic zones with 17 activity areas to explore :
Imagine Zone : Built Environment, Supermarket and Dino Pit
Experience Zone: Stop-motion Area, Critters and Nature Area
Discover Zone: From “why is the sky blue?” to “how does hair grow?”, almost all the little ones’ curious questions can be answered here.
Dream Zone: Include a two-storey climbing structure, which has hanging doors, flying fish, giant gears and various other mind boggling, interactive exhibits
LEGO® Education workshops and other school and visitors programs are also held here
